About this Event

***This training is open only to Mental Health & Addiction Staff within Health PEI unless otherwise stated.***

Infection prevention is a scientific approach and practical solution designed to prevent harm caused by infection to patients and health workers. It is grounded in infectious diseases, epidemiology, social science and health system strengthening. Infection control refers to the policy and procedures implemented to control and minimize the dissemination of infections in hospitals and other healthcare settings with the main purpose of reducing infection rates.

The purpose of employee health programs is to improve employees' health and well-being, often through preventive care. Goals can include preventing and managing chronic diseases to lower their health and economic burden, improving employee morale and motivation, and improving employees' quality of life.

Learning Objectives:

• To review each program and provide staff with knowledge on how to access the services of the program

• To understand the role of the infection prevention and control /employee health representative

• To increase understanding of the employee role in infection prevention and employee health
